    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Today's music, painting, and film share with literature in the development of a new aesthetic, even as these other arts influence (and are influenced by) literary themes and structures.

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 19.95

    Wiley 2015; US$ 29.95 US$ 25.96

  • The Limits of Critiqueby Rita Felski

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 22.50

    Why must critics unmask and demystify literary works? Why do they believe that language is always withholding some truth, that the critic?s task is to reveal the unsaid or repressed?
